Exam regulations at The Cultural Geography Group

Rules regarding exams

Students may encounter physical problems making the regular exam due to dyslexia or CANS.

In these cases a request for an alternative exam can be made by emailing your teacher at least four weeks before the exam. Your request should be accompanied by an official statement from a physician or student counsellor from Wageningen UR.

Sometimes students are faced with double scheduled exams. If so, please inform the teacher of the course, who will decide whether or not we can provide a solution. Please mention the courses codes when contacting him/her.
